Browne wrote, July 24, Your article on Replevin was learned, and well and logically expressed. It was an extraordinary article for a young man; but it is not practical. July, 1834, Vol. XII. pp. 248-270. To the July number alone he contributed more than one hundred pages. In May, he became one of the editors. His classmate Browne, whose advice he sought in relation to this connection, did not think the effect of habitual writing for law magazines upon a lawyer's mind to be wholesome, and surn from Washington, Judge Story pressed him to accept a connection with the Law School as instructor; but the offer was declined. An extract from his classmate Browne's letter, of May 2, shows the latter's view of Sumner's probable future:— In the concluding lines of your letter, which I received this morning, you seemed

Among these were Mr. Daveis, Mr. Appleton, of Bangor, now Chief-Justice of Maine, Mr. Parsons, and his classmate Browne. Sumner's time was much occupied, in 1835-36, in revising and completing Dunlap's Admiralty Practice. The author, Andrew Dunlap, had mainly written the text of his book; when, in the early part of 1835, he was obliged by failing health to resture, then much larger than now, soon after they entered on manly life; Winthrop was elected to the Legislature in Nov., 1834. Hillard and John O. Sargent, a classmate of Sumner, were elected to the same body in Nov., 1835; and his classmate, Browne, in Nov., 1837. but no one seems to have thought of him in such a connection, and certainly he had no ambition for the place.

Chapter 9: going to Europe.—December, 1837.—Age, 26. From his boyhood Sumner had longed to visit Europe, and with his reading of history this desire grew into a passion.
